weekly photo challenge : mine

This week (which was really last week) the challenge was (to quote): “ Mine: Is there a place, object, or view that’s entirely yours, or you’re a bit selfish or possessive about? Is it a feeling you feel when you look at the photo, or perhaps an unwillingness to share?” This opens a real can of worms, don’t you think? Should I say I can’t think of a thing so you’ll think what a wonderful and unselfish person I am? Or should I show you the real me, who has so many things that almost fit this challenge? I’m guessing that you want to see the real me, and what would my post be without photos? Here are some interpretations of “mine”. First off here is a view of the Rio Grande Gorge that you see when driving from Santa Fe to Taos, New Mexico. It is always special. Even though I am possessive about the view, I am totally willing to share.

view of the gorgeHere’s a view that is not shared with too many people – only the special ones who come to visit. It is the view from our deck in Taos Ski Valley:

view from the deckHere’s a view I never tire of, and because of the tile work and all the plants I have put in the garden, I consider it mine. Again, being on a city street, I am happy to share.

me with my parentsThis last photo is a bit of a stretch on the theme. It’s my shadow. For those of you who don’t know me, I am actually as tall as I appear in this picture. Oh drat, you might not believe me if you just saw that photo with my parents. Didn’t think that out very well, did I?

my shadowThat’s it for now. It’s late and I’m off my schedule. Sure hope the next photo challenge comes out on time. I hate people messing with my addiction.

      Thanks, and we managed to avoid the deer in the headlights look!


  2. Very cool idea. I noticed you picked places and people to define ‘mine’- no objects or material possessions. Very good of you!


  3. Love your favourite view and the one of you with your mum & dad


    1. Too bad they’ll probably never see it. They shun computers like they’re Amish! And as you can see, they are not.


  4. It says so much about you that almost everything you feel is “mine” you will share with everyone.. just like your photographs:D xx


  5. Lovely pics and nice challenge.


    1. Thanks, Monica. I would have liked to go out and take some photos for this challenge, but timing wasn’t good. Glad you liked what I found.


    1. Thank you. I’ll be checking your blog too. I love technology, even though it often defeats me, I still love it!
